Parental Access Support System (PASS)

We have just completed our first full year using the Parental Access Support System or PASS.  The purpose in using this system is to provide parents and students with academic progress and other important information via the Internet.  By providing easy access, students and parents can readily obtain a "snapshot" view of academic progress as well as other pertinent classroom information at any time.

Overall the process worked well.  I received many complimentary comments and supportive feedback that were helpful and encouraging.  We also experienced difficulties with technology and user errors that resulted in frustration and delays.

During this "shakedown cruise" the hard work of many individuals resulted in a much improved product by the end of the school year.  We learned a great deal and our teachers have become more adept and confident in  the use of this reporting system.  We are optimistic that the 2010-2011 school year will be much improved, resulting in a level of communication that is of benefit to our students and their parents.  I greatly appreciate your patience as we continue our efforts to improve our reporting system.

Thanks for the book recommendation. I think a faculty read will be beneficial, and the content sounds evocative.
